Hippo Tang advice needed

I have a young hippo tang that I have had for about 4-5 weeks. He is swimming and eating fine. But there is almost like this small bubble that is coming out of the bottom of it. I thought it was something to do with its intestines, but it is further back than where the poop <-- (lack of a better word) comes out. It seems to be doing fine. I feed once a day and I am starting today to feed once every 2 days. I have a queen angel and a percula clown and a cleaner shrimp that all seem to behaving normal.

Any advice would be much help.

Can you describe the "bubble" in a bit more detail? Mabye post a clear macro pic if possible?

Please also post as much detail as possible about the tank set up, water paramaters (actual numbers) and your maintenance routines.

What do you commonly feed the fish/tang?
